MORE ABOUT INDICA:
Because Indica plants are able to grow in colder, harsher climates, these plants tend to have dense foliage and fatter leaves, indica plants withstand much harsher growing environments than Sativa strains in addition to being shorter and stalkier in appearance. A great feature of Indicas that evolved as the plant adapted to a harsh mountainous climate is the ability to produce a thick cannabinoid-dense resin to protect itself. Indicas are typically highly potent, with naturally high levels of THC.
EFFECTS OF INDICA:
While smoking sativa is like a strong cup of coffee, the effects of smoking indica are more like a sleeping pill. Indicas typically produce a sedative effect that makes smokers feel sleepy and relaxed. Indicas typically have a distinct skunky odor.
Because of their shorter, stockier profile. Indica plants are a favorite among indoor growers. While Indicas only grow 3 to 6 feet tall, they have an early flowering time between 8 and 9 weeks. Indicas are known to have a deep purple color to their stocks.
